Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed 3 nights at Marys lovely b and b. The fact it was a working dairy farm encouraged us to stay there and check life on the farm. Rooms were very comfortable, well appointed and breakfast magnificent. Mary was incredibly obliging and helpful with advise and suggestions on where to go and what to see. We throughly recommend Balindrun Farm.

Our host Mary was amazing ... very friendly, efficient, constantly in motion, with just the right amount of attention without being intrusive. We arrived in the early evening and were quickly settled in and offered a pot of tea which came with scones fresh out of the oven. Room was not overly spacious for a family of 4 but bathroom was quite nice, and the common areas on the first floor plus the lovely farm all around mean you won't spend much time in your room. Quiet, comfortable beds. The heifers and the chickens were obviously used to being fed and would approach people near the fences. Wonderful breakfast with buffet items and made to order hot items from a menu. Good overall value for the money.

Having used a number of similar places during our stay paid slightly more than equivalent other accommodation in Ireland.This was reflected in the overall experience. Made us feel at home Friendly staff( Mary ) very helpful Tea and scones on arrival . Facilities good,bed room well appointed. The locations nice and quiet, a short drive Taxi ride into nearby Athy for food and drink. The Breakfast was excellent plenty of choice , the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs was superb.

Home away from home. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here for 6 days - work trip. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could possibly think of, even welcoming coffee and tea with milk. The 2 bedrooms have TV's, TV in the living room has satellite channels, WiFi is good so was able to work. The main bedroom has an en-suite. Loved the open fire in the living room! Washing machine, dryer, fridge, freezer, dishwasher - this lovely little place has everything! Mary made a lovely breakfast... fresh farm eggs, home made bread and marmalade / jam, fresh fruit salad with no sugars, cereal, cooked breakfast - this is excellent value for money if there are 2 or more people. Woke up to sun blazing and the sound of birds singing - so many wild birds, robins, chaffinch,

Just returned from visiting Athy with my two sisters and mum, as she is from the area we wanted somewhere accessible and easy to get into see family. To say Mary & Vincent made the trip extra special does not really cover it. From the warm welcome with homemade scones and jam to the outstanding breakfasts it was truly the loveliest place you could stay. We stayed in the apartment which was completely accessible for mum, spotlessly clean and the extra touches from the toiletries to the biscuits was just lovely-nothing was too much for Mary. If you stay anywhere stay here, the setting is gorgeous and waking up to cows outside our window was fabulous. Next time we come we are definitely going to take the opportunity to be shown the working side of the farm. thank you so much Mary

Our stay began with a warm welcome from Mary and cup of tea and home baked cakes. We had advised ahead of our stay that our son is a coeliac and needs gluten free food, assuming this would just cover breakfast. So the gf cherry cake on arrival and gf biscuits in our room were a lovely surprise. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast offered amazing choices including gf options such as cereal and bread and gf potato waffles with the cooked breakfast. The cooked breakfast was delicious and set us up well for the day. Cannot speak highly enough of this b&b.

It was lovely to be welcomed by Mary with home made scones, jam and cream. Our room was light and comfortable with a well fitted modern ensuite. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was all delicious. Ballindrum Farm is in lovely countryside, but only a short drive from Kildare and the National Stud which we visited. We were only sorry our stay could not have been longer.
